For a number of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and that will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they're not part of your site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
